    This paper has been prepared to increase the circulation of our slide mounting techniques beyond the usual expert entomologist readership to the natural history conservator and curator community. Slide making methods are published in taxonomic papers or in Entomological manuals such as Cranston & Gullan (199X). Carter and Walker (1999) do not cover slide-making techniques. If possible, it is worth referring to an expert taxonomist working on the group of insects or other small organisms concerned so as to learn the latest and best specific variations in preparation and dissection techniques.
